Вэйлон Дженнингс Вэйлон Дженнингс Американская легенда музыки "кантри"

G. I. Joe

Verse 1:

Well he smoked tHose Camel cigarettes about three packs a day

Nicotine stains on his fingers when he'd stretch them out to play That old "Midnight special" is one he loved to do

Then he'd sing "I'm walking the floor over you



"Verse 2:

TV preachers and welfare checks for him just had no place

But he'd take his time to tune real good when he sang "Amazing Grace" He'd say boys I'm old and crazy but I still give a damn

And I still think the boys got screwed over in Vietnam



Chorus:

He'd drag out that old uniform

And say "they used to call me slim"

He never could get it buttoned up

But the pride looked good on him

He still feels the way he felt

Over forty years ago

Here's to the old man

Here's to G.I. Joe



Verse 3:

He only sang the old songs, he's standing still in time

"My Phillipino baby", right there on his mind

Then he'd talk about the big one, the war we didn't lose

He'd pick a little bit like Travis "Re-Enlistment blues"



Chorus.

Here's to my old man

And all the G.I. Joe's
